Hi! I'm Sharon and live in Arkansas. I am experiencing a gastritis flare right now. This is terrible. I'm a full-time college student and am looking for people that are experiencing the same problem. I welcome any advice on gastritis or ulcerative colitis. All replies are welcome! Thanks!

Hello! I am also new here. I have arthritis and spinal surgery 2 years ago which left me with nerve damage in my leg. Since then I have had anxiety depression and panic attacks. I can only drive short distances so I sometimes feel depedant. Husband does best to understand but people do not understand anxiety unless they have it especially panic. Sometimes it embarrass's me. Thank you for listening.

Jodi- You're not alone here! Are you on any medication for the anxiety? It can be such a detriment to the heart. I wsih you the best

Thank you janisum. I take antidepressants and panic med but sometimes I feel a little embarrassed especially if you gp to a new doctor and you hope that they are not judging your condition on the meDS YOUR ON. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS REMAINS A stigma with some people. If someone is on Psyche mess it does not mean they are crazy or. To quote an old expression it must all be in her head. This might make a good discussion topic. Psyche mess and "labeling" people. Any bites?

Hi Jodi just wanted to welcome you. Nothing to feel embarrased about. We all have to take different medications for many different things. I have always suffered anixety from a very young age and also experienced panic attacks, depression set in later in life. I have always considered myself to be no different from anyone else and always try to make people feel as if there no different from anyone else. I am in my fifty's now so have seen situations and experienced much of the stigma attached. Try to ignore as much as you can. Stay positive is a good trait that I have found has helped me. Be proud to be who you are. Take care always here if you need to talk.

Maybe you misunderstood my statement about the heart? I worded it wrong, perhaps. I was referring to our muscle, the heart. If stress or anxiety is a struggle, I strongly believe in medicating it. I'm sure you do too. Thanks for commenting, Jodi.

Hi, janisum. I've been depressed since I was 4. On meds of one form or another for 40 yrs. Haven't gotten any better really, but I'm high functioning. I've recently gotten worse and decided I can't take it anymore. So, next week I am giving ECT a try. I hope I'm making the right decision, but I feel if I am ever going to have a chance at happiness, I've got to give it a go.
